NBC relies on Avid, Digidesign for Torino

NBC used Avid video and Digidesign audio workflow solutions to prepare for the network’s broadcast of the Olympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy.

The solutions enabled NBC to construct a comprehensive, state-of-the-art digital SD and HD production pipeline that expands the video and audio workflow it implemented for the 2004 Summer Olympics.

NBC’s Torino production facility will be composed of six Avid Unity ISIS systems and three Avid Unity LANshare shared-storage systems, totaling more than 100TB of storage; 36 Media Composer Adrenaline systems, 29 of which are equipped with the Avid DNxcel board for HD capture, real-time editing and output; a Digidesign ICON integrated console environment featuring a D-Control console and a Pro Tools|HD 7 Accel system for recording, producing and mixing audio in 5.1-channel surround sound; and five Deko 3000 HD character generators.
